Outreach Activities

Toledo Excel Program

Since it began in 1988, TOLEDO EXCEL has been striving to prepare underrepresented students for success in college. This program aims to introduce college life and the many programs that UToledo offers to rise graders who have been offered a place in the Toledo EXCEL Scholarship Incentive program. In the summer of 2021, the PI was involved with this program by holding a workshop entitled “The fourth state of matter: Fundamentals and applications of gas plasma” for a group of approximately 50 rising 9th graders.

Imagination Station

Through one of our NSF grants, we plan to dedicate a low-power plasma setup to the Imagination Station in Toledo, OH. One of their educational activities for kids is about “States of Matter”. Although they conduct well-designed experiments to teach these concepts to the kids, there is no plasma experiment in that activity zone. Thus, we would like to provide them with a low-power and very safe plasma setup so that the visitors can also directly experience this important state of matter. Such an experiment will increase public engagement with science and technology, specifically children’s.

Lab Tours

We have K-12 students and their families visiting ARPL from time to time. We provide briefings and lab demonstrations to attract more students to STEM programs for their higher education. Such activities will increase public, and specifically children’s, engagement with science and technology.
